Aqueous extract of Orthosiphon thymiflorus have been tested for diuretic activity in rats. The parameters taken for each individual rat were; body weight before and after test period, total urine volume (corrected for water intake during the test period), urine concentration of Na+, K+ and Cl-. The extract given orally does not act as an aquaretic. The values of urine volume are only slightly elevated. However, the cation and Cl- excreation is increased.
